"But I was so wrapped up in sports growing up as a kid, that I think I was going to grow to be a pro ball player. But I found out real quick that was not going to happen."
"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."Tim McGraw on Michael Jordan
"It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling."Tim McGraw on Mark Twain
"Golf is a good walk spoiled."Tim McGraw on Mark Twain
"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."Tim McGraw on Hunter S. Thompson
"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."Tim McGraw on Henry David Thoreau

"I'm actually not an exhibitionist at all. When you get onstage and you get under the lights playing music, I feel more hidden and more alone than anywhere else. You hide behind your music and let your emotions come out through the music."
"When I was a kid, my step dad started this business and would go out and get lost cows and stuff. He was part-time truck driver, farmer and cowboy. He taught me how to ride from an early age."
"You know not having my real dad around and having a step dad made me want to be a great dad. So now I have been one for 9 years. And now 3 daughters. So, that is what I am - a dad, first and foremost, before anything else. It's just something that comes natural now."
"I'm a private guy, and you don't want to be out there preaching to people. But faith leads you in the decisions you make. You don't always pick the right path, but it's there in your conscience."
